Sunrise at Lake Ocoee

My wife and I were going over to Waynesville, NC on Thursday to pick up a granddaughter who had been spending a few days with her best friend from Papua New Guinea.  Being the fall color season, we wanted to take some time for some photographs in the mountains, so we left early, before 7 AM.  It turned out that sunrise was just as we were getting to Lake Ocoee (also known as Parksville Lake), and the cool morning brought fog and mist with it.  We also had time to take brief drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway.  Here are a few of my favorite photos from the daytrip to Waynesville.
